[Public Discussion] Privacy & Data Protection: The Road Ahead; December 18, 2017

Dec 12,2017 | 10:43 am

SFLC.in is organizing a public discussion titled “Privacy & Data Protection: The Road Ahead” on Monday, December 18 at the Avenue Centre, Panampilly Avenue, Panampilly Nagar, Kochi from 5:00 PM onwards. This discussion is being organized in light of recent developments in India’s privacy and data protection landscape, including a historic decision by a nine-judge Bench of the Supreme Court upholding the fundamental right to privacy, the constitution of an expert committee on data protection by the Government of India, and the publication of a white paper by said committee seeking public comments on key aspects of a data protection legislation.

These crucial developments present an excellent backdrop for a public discussion on privacy and data protection, as it will help stakeholders contribute more effectively to relevant policy processes during this transitory period. The discussion will include a keynote address by Hon’ble Justice A K Jayasankaran Nambiar (Judge, Kerala High Court), a presentation by Prasanth Sugathan (Legal Director, SFLC.in) on the European data protection framework which often serves as a point of reference for legislators, a panel discussion on the Indian framework featuring experts from the multi-stakeholder community, and a networking dinner.

If you would like to participate in this discussion, please register at this link latest by Saturday, December 16.
